Just got a whistler XCS 800 cordless detector.It is almost constantly falsing laser warning.Driving me nuts.Good batteries,mounted on windshield which is pitted,does not do it when laser turned off.Works very good otherwise.Live in rural area.Had 3 other detectors never do this.(with same car,windshield) Would the pitted windshield cause this? Doesn't seem to do it when pointed out door window.Did not seem to do it last night going home.Maybe once or twice. -Bob

Laser is very sensitive to false alarms often set off when driving by an airport, or military base. Set your laser on City Mode and pay attention exactly where it goes off. Mine goes off constantly in the same place which is a air force base in Tucson, AZ. Unless you drive like crazy shut it off in the city although the cops like to use a hand held one in school zones. In 6 years of driving in Arizona I have had one real laser alert, and other than false alerts, real ones are far and few in between. Check when and where the unit alerts and use different sensitivity settings. One more thing, if your laser warning goes off you already have the ticket since the cops use them at close range unlike the radar bands. Hope this helps.
The 2270 is a very old remote radar detector. It has been replaced by several units over the years. Whistler's latest remote model is the Pro-3600. Call Whistler at 800-531-0004 about their trade in program to update the 2270.
Contact Whistler at 800-531-0004 and they can talk to you about your options to fix your unit. If you have a Pro-78SE and its under 3 years old you can send it in (with a copy of your dated store receipt) and they will take care of it under warranty.
how long have you had it? Have you had a radar detector before this one? Try a factory reset - hold in the power button and the quiet button, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit will beep twice indicating that its reset. Remember the unit is not a "Cop" detector its a radar detector so not all police cars have radar in them and if they do they may not have it turned on.
Have you tried this unit in a differnt vehicle? Does it still alarm the same? contact Whistler at 800-531-0004 and they can go through more options with you on steps to try and resolve this issue for you.
if you have an old cordless phone like a uniden or cell phone you can take the speaker out and attach it to your radar detector it works just fine in mine,no problems. you might have to remove the speaker housing if it has one. Justy be real careful not to puncture the speaker as i almost did.
